Meet Elise

Elise Reaves has over 20 years of experience, and a comprehensive understanding of event planning and implementation. Her versatility has been an asset to her clients as she is able to draw upon her experience as a corporate producer, stage manager, tour manager, and strategic meetings and event planner.

Elise kicked off her career in entertainment right out of college by going to work as production assistant to the executive producer at Radio City Music Hall in their Special Events Division; she worked her way up to associate producer. She then accepted a position as executive in charge of talent at Eventures. Her responsibilities included overseeing all logistics for show talent; including celebrity appearances, casting for field shows including marching bands, drill teams and specialty acts. She managed a staff of 75 for events such as the Goodwill Games: Opening and Closing Ceremonies; the World Cup: Opening Ceremonies; and the Olympic Festival: Opening and Closing Ceremonies.

Taking her experience on the road, she has traveled worldwide on music tours. She was tour manager for Diana Ross during her Here and Now tour. In addition, she coordinated special appearances for private corporate events; press junkets; and television including the Super Bowl Half Time Show, Soul Train Awards, and Jay Leno. Elise also toured for two years with Prince on his Diamond and Pearls Tour, and with Michael Jackson, on BAD.

As a corporate executive producer, she is responsible for hiring and supervising the production team; from the writers, graphic artist, and creative staff, to the technical director and crew. She is actively involved in the development, and the creative concepts for events.

Elise is also a DGA stage manager. She had the honor of stage managing on the We Are One; Concert at the Lincoln Memorial during the Inaugural events for President Obama, for which she won a DGA Award. She won a second DGA Award for the 2010 Tony Awards.
